Microsoft is buying LinkedIn for a whopping $26.2 billion in big data push

WOW! That is a lot of cash.

Wonder if they get Lynda with it too. I would assume so.

FFS. BILLION.

I get stoked when I find a $10 in the pocket of my sweatshirt.

Can't see why they'd want it; I must be missing something.

Hope they at least plug all the holes. From what I've read lately, LinkedIn's big data breach is still having repercussions years later.
